AN EXCELLENT EDUCATION FOR EVERY CHILD!

Gloria is a passionate community leader who believes that all children in Baton Rouge deserve an excellent education. As a physical therapist, small business owner, a grandmother, and a dedicated community volunteer and board member; she is committed to ensuring a brighter future for the next generation.

I believe that excellent public schools can be achieved with dedicated board members working together.

Why I'm Running

I believe every child deserves access to a quality education. This is unfortunately not the case in the EBR school system where approximately 50% of our schools are ranked D/F. In a district with over 80 schools, this number is unacceptable.

 

I have watched and waited for things to improve but they have not. We must create a better public school system in order to have a better city-parish. Our children deserve a better education and a brighter future. I am passionate about children's issues and have focused most of my community service on improving the health and well-being of children and their families through my volunteer activities. 

 

By serving on the school board, I will have the opportunity to apply that same passion and experience to improve education and outcomes for all EBR children. I view this as a unique opportunity to contribute to students, teachers, our district, and our city.
